“Creepy, low-class place”
Reviewed April 30, 2008

A creepy and most inconvenient 3 nights: key card had to be "re-swiped" three times. Housekeeping left visible dirt and trash in the bathroom. Poor baseboard carpentry left holes and globs of caulking.Someone appeared to be "camping out" next door, with a barbecue and boom box on display outside the door. Broken beer bottles near customers' parked cars.TV gets only 4 channels, two of them poorly.

I would be less inclined to complain if the rate was $49 for all three nights, as it was on Sunday. But at $89 and $99 on Friday and Saturday, one expects more. It felt like a low class place. My brother in-law recommended 10 people to this place. I'll make sure he does not recommend any more.

For $150 a night...definitely not worth the price. The air conditioning/
heating unit sounded like a lawn mower cranking up everytime it came on. Basic furnishings but not kept up well.

I stayed here last week and was appalled at the conditions!! Let me start by saying that I am not one of those people who are quick to complain. I am relatively easy to please. This hotel was a huge disappointment. Upon arrival, our room's air conditioner was off, so we had to cool the room down after we got there. (Not pleasant in the middle of the summer!!) Our room smelled terrible. When we called down to ask if we could have our money back (within their 20 minutes alloted to do so) we were told that we couldn't get a refund to leave. Instead, the manager brought us a bottle of Febreeze. There were roaches coming up out of our shower drain throughout the entire week. The water didn't drain either, which was gross considering there were wads of hair stuck in the drain. The breakfast consisted of one type of muffin and apple danishes (both cold) , along with a tub of Sunny Delight (not cold). I don't think that they ever clean the pool, considering the debris floating in it, sand in the bottom, and disgusting green color of the water. The bedspread was dingy, as well as the blanket underneath. I slept under just the sheet and hoped it was clean. We stayed there with friends and they were just as disgusted and disappointed in their room as we were. We checked out a day early even though we had already paid to stay there if that gives you any indication of how bad this motel was. (Of course we couldn't get that money back either!) We will never stay here again!!!!

  • Liked — The price.
  • Disliked — The lack of cleanliness!!

I have stayed there twice for cruises. This is a Great place for the price (you cant find much cheaper in galveston). It is very clean and in a nice neighborhood. Dont expect anything fancy and there is not much breakfast but it is nice for a place to lay your head and the guy at the front desk was very nice.

We have stayed at other hotels for the same price and had absolutely wonderful stays. I can't say the same about this place. The "suite" was missing the sofa and table, the rest of the furniture was broken or needed repairs and/or cleaning. The telephone did not work, there are no amenities. The two towels left in the room were ragged and stained. The first morning my husband went to the lobby for 2 cups of coffee and two of the stale sweet rolls, he was yelled at by the desk clerk that he could not take anything out of the dining area. Being extremely embarassed, he left and bought our breakfast elsewhere. We also purchased our own coffeemaker, coffee, and cups since they were not provided. We were accosted by beggars in the parking lot when returning to the hotel. We have stayed at many hotels in the Galveston area and have never felt so disappointed as we did in this last stay. Please don't ruin your vacation by staying in this place. We forfeited the cost ot the rest of our stay just to get out of the place. The manager stated,"Sorry, you must give 24 hour notice."

  • Liked — Close to the beach
  • Disliked — No amenities, poor quality, and the overall rudeness and lack of response from the staff
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't stay here

Two-year-old budget property in Galveston. Was inexpensive, but that showed in towels, bedding and amenities. Room was clean and had microfridge and microwave. High-speed available in room, but firewall prevented sending email. Breakfast limited to coffee, juice and danish. The property was acceptable, but I suspect that guests choosing to stay in '07 and beyond will find that the economy starts to show in other ways.

As a returning guest from years ago, I was very disappointed. The room smelled like smoke and was filthy. It now needs painting.There were stains on walls, the carpet was so dirty that we wore socks at all times. The tub backed up with water while showering, beds were hard and we never received extra pillows that we requested. Breakfeast was a joke and the staff was rude. Would not recommend.
